Le Bonheur ("Happiness") is a 1965 French drama film directed by Agnès Varda.  The film is associated with the French New Wave and won two awards at the 15th Berlin International Film Festival, including the Jury Grand Prix. The film's beautiful colours resulted from the creation of a new colour negative because the original had faded during production.
François and Thérèse are happily married and live in their own house with their two children. One day François reveals to his wife that he's having an affair with a woman named Émilie. His suggestion of a ménage à trois dismays Thérèse and she commits suicide.
